How do I change the bobbin in a Janome sewing machine?


There is a small plastic plate where the needle goes down through the foot, remove this cover and you will see the bobbin. Remove the bobbin and refill or selecting another bobbin turn it so that when you pull the thread the bobbin turns anti-clock-wise, slip the bobbin into the black plastic casing, pulling the thread towards the small red arrow at the bottom of the casing, slip the thread between break in the silver metal sleeve pulling it to your left between the 2 pieces of metal this is where the tension on the thread is. You have now changed your bobbin. With the plastic plate still off, hold the top thread with your left hand and with your right slowly turn the wheel, this will send the needle (holding your top thread) down into the bobbin casing and will pick up the bottom thread, pull on the top thread and bring the bottom thread up through the hole in the plate. Replace the plastic plate and recommence sewing. Good luck

Janome problem


Check that the thread is hooked into the little slit on the top side (pull down to hook in). It should trail across the centre of the bobbin.

Check your needle as well. Lift the bobbin lid and turn the wheel to see what is going on down there. Also, make sure bobbin is not upside down. Side with little slit should be on top. Good luck

Why does the needle keeps getting stuck in the bobbin


Sounds like you've got a thread jam going on. Take the bobbin and bobbin case out, take the needle plate (=throat plate) off the machine, and clean all the lint and bits of thread and other gunge out of there. Reassemble. Rethread with the presser foot up. Fetch up the bobbin thread and pull bobbin and top thread ends under and behind the presser foot. Then start each seam like this:
1. Fabric under the presser foot; lower needle with handwheel or needle up/down key into the beginning of the seam.
2. Drop the presser foot.
3. Hold the ends of the bobbin and top thread behind the presser foot while you take the first 2-3 stitches
4. Drop the thread ends and sew normally.

Bobbin case problems


Oh wow. That's definitely not good. Well you'll need to replace the bobbin case, and needle plate. Even the slightest burr can cause havoc. you could try smoothing down burrs with some fine sand paper but you'll need to replace the case eventually if you can't get this problem identified and fixed.

Next look for a build up or stray threads under and around the needle plate/bobbin area. Make absolutely certain you have the right needles for your machine.

Janome 3000 bobbin thread will not catch. It just quit while I was sewing. I've cleaned the bobbin case and anything else I could but when I put the needle down the thread does not circle the b


try changing the needle
rethread the machine top & bobbin
make sure to use every thread guide
make sure the bobbin is not over wound
make sure the bobbin is turned the right way in the bobbin case
make sure the bobbin is not warped or damaged
if you've done all these things then it's also possible that the machine

Janome 9000 bobbin thread ends up on top of fabric


change the needle--
Correct needle insertion is mandatory for proper use of your sewing machine.
Raise the needle bar to the highest point, then loosen the needle clamp screw to remove the old needle.
Place the new needle in the needle clamp with the flat side of the needle facing the back, (round needle, the groove in the needle should face away from the shaft).
Push the needle all the way up as far as it will go. Then tighten the needle clamp screw.

rethread the top thread--top & bobbin
check the bobbin to make sure the bobbin is not damaged
reinsert the bobbin in the case correctly

Janome jd 1822 when i'm doing zig zag, the thread is missing stitches and also my threads keep breaking


rethread the machine getting every thread guide
check the thread tension 3 or 4 is usually good
Change needle--make sure the flat side is toward the back of the machine & that it's insert as high as it will go--make sure the needle bar is raised to it's highest position
Clean under needle plate where feed dogs are for lint
Clean bobbin area for lint or loose threads
Rethread machine top thread make sure to get every thread guide
& bobbin that the bobbin is wound correctly & put into the bobbin case or shuttle correctly

here a tip about needle & thread compatability
Cut 6-8 inch piece of thread of the spool you are going to use for your project
Take the needle you are going to use for the project
& insert the thread thru the eye of the needle
& lift one end of the thread to a 45 degree angle
& if the needle is the right size for the thread it will slide down the thread
But if the needle hangs on the thread you need one size larger needle for the thread

I have a Janome Model DC 3018.My problem is that bobbin thread goes around several loops and jams ( it will not come up). What should be done to correct this?


It is probably one of two things, the upper thread is not in the take up lever "this is the lever that moves up and down with the needle and is located at the top pf the machine when the needle is in the up position or the bobbin case is damaged. If the bobbon case is damaged, it neede to be replaced.
Good Luck

Janome MC11000 - my bobbin case becomes dislodged


My bobbin case was jumping all the time...had it in for repairs and would bring it home and even though the tech had attached a test sew piece with different colored bobbin and top thread I could not get it to sew without the bobbin jumping. I thought that he had lied about that being sewn on this machine...finally, I found that you should start with plenty of thread in your hand when threading machine...so that once you feel it click into the tension...DO NOT PULL the thread, it pops it out of the tensioner...just loosely thread and hold tension with your thumb and forefinger while using the needle threader.

Will not pick up bobbin thread


Unusual for this machine. Check to be sure the needle is inserted with the flat side to the back of the machine. If it is, remove the needle plate, bobbin and bobbin case. Turn the hand wheel slowly toward you and see if the point of the hook is above or below the eye of the needle when the hook point is aligned behind the needle. If the eye is above the point of the hook the machine is out of time and best taken to qualified technician.
